  • Robbie Matthews dominates Quick 8 Outlaws event at Orangeburg

    Matthew's Quick 8 Outlaws 9-28-2013 042The Quick 8 Outlaws were in action Saturday night at Orangeburg Drag Strip. Robbie Matthews in the Kauffman Motorsports ‘57 Chevy dominated the event. Not only did Matthews when the event but he locked up the 2013 championship in the process.

     

    “First I want to dedicate this race to Kip’s sister Trish,” said Matthews standing in the winner’s circle. ” Its been a rough few months for Kip and his family. He lost his Mother Lucy in June and Trish passed away the first of September.”

     

    With the second of two rounds of qualifying complete Robbie sat atop the sheet with a 3.907 at 192.64. Jimmy Sandefur was second with a 4.192 at 173.14. Matthews and Sandefur had the most success getting down the track. Most of the other teams battled track conditions and had trouble getting down the tricky surface. Woody Elders ended up third with a 4.798 at 140.35.

     

    James Linton Jr made his return to racing Saturday and qualified his Duster fourth with a 4.820 at 118.11. Phillip Keller was fifth with a 4.844 at 142.81. Tim Spradley put his Camaro in the show sixth with a 5.736 at 138.41. Irvin Rose was seventh with a 5.899 at 152.28. Anchoring the field was Alan Pittman with a 6.213 at 74.29. Missing the filed was Steve Bray and Ric Fleck.

     

    When announcer Don Garrick called the Quick 8Outlaws to the lanes for the first round of eliminations James Linton Jr and Phillip Keller was the first pair up. When James made the attempt to fire up his Duster nothing happened. The team several attempts but nothing happened. Phillip Keller got the win with a 4.903 at 141.55. “The MSD box just quit working,” said James Linton. “We got back to the pits and changed the box and it fired right up. We’ve just had some bad luck this year.”

     

    The next pair to the water boxes was Tim Spradley and Woody Elders. Woody turned on the win light with a 4.819 at 145.30 to Spradley’s 5010 at 151.41. Irvin Rose and Jimmy Sandefur were up next. Sandefur posted a 4.162 at 173.61 while Rose battled traction issues and posted a 5.169 at 159.92. The final pair of the first round was Alan Pittman and Robbie Matthews. After Alan did his burnout the track officials noticed that the Blade Runner Camaro was leaking fluid and he had to be shut off. Robbie posted a 3.933 at 189.55 to advance to the next round.

     

    The semi-finals kicked off with Woody Elders and Jimmy Sandefur. Jimmy won this round with a 4.327 at 167.28 while Elders posted a 4.790 at 142.40. Phillip Keller had the tough task of taking on Robbie Matthews. Robbie got loose at half and had to pedal the ‘57 but had enough to get the win with a 4.54 at 144.83 to Keller’s 4.807 at 142.95.

     

    With the final round set it was a classic blower vs nitrous battle. When the tree activated Sandefur got a slight advantage over Matthews. Jimmy just didn’t have enough as Matthews quickly made up the difference and dipped into the 3.90’s again with a 3.903 at 187.42. Sandefur had burst panel let go and posted a 4.410 at 136.44.

     

    “We had good outing today,” stated runner-up Jimmy Sandefur. “We’ll be back if our schedule allows it. I still had a good day, it was a little frustrating to start with because of a couple of small problems that we to work through. Our shifter bottle regulator went wide open and broke some lines to the shifter. After we got that figured out we were just trying to get down the track.”

     

    Jimmy continued and said, “I want to thank my two sons’ Darrin and Joel for their hard work. These are good boys, both of them. They’d rather do this than eat when they’re hungry. This makes the tenth final that I have been in this year. We had s good day though, we had fun out here we appreciate it. Also, I want to dedicate this race to the memory of Mark Fowler. Mark was a really good friend of ours.”

     

    The winning car owner Kip Kauffman added, “We couldn’t do this without our crew. It takes the whole team to do this and we have the best one out here. Thanks to Hoosier Tires, City Garage, Cameron’s Torque Convert Services, Brad Anderson Engineering, Robbie Matthews and Lucas Oil Products. I’ve had two very important people that have passed away in the last three months. Maybe that’s why he has given us these wins, that’s all I can say.”

     

    Robbie Matthews capped off the night by saying, “That’s two wins in a row at Orangeburg. We’ve won four of the last five Quick 8 Outlaws races. We’ve had a whole lot of luck. We had to fight through some adversity again today. We broke two rocker arms but we got it fixed. We couldn’t do this without the best and hardest working crew out here. I want to thank Kip, Cameron, Pappy, Jay, Peanut, Bobby, Mark and Honeycutt. Also, thanks to City Garage, Torque Converter Services, Bad Anderson and Lucas Oil.”

     

    The next Quick 8 Outlaws event will be at Darlington Dragway on October 26th. For more information please visit www.facebook.com/TheQuick8Outlaws. You can also call Buddy Trivette at 828-215-9710 or email at buddytrivette@yahoo.com.

  • Robbie Matthews continues hot streak, wins the Quick 8 Outlaws event at Orangeburg

    Matthew's Quick 8 Outlaws Orangeburg 7-20-2013 088_edited-1A familiar face scored the win at Orangeburg Drag Strip Saturday night. Robbie Matthews hoisted the trophy in victory lane for the third straight race.

     

    “That’s three wins in a row,” said the winning car owner Kip Kauffman. “We ain’t never won Orangeburg. We’ve been number the one qualifier, lost the race last year with a .0007 red light. This is the only one we haven’t won and now we got it. I don’t who to thank the most, Robbie, Cameron and the crew. We got one heck of a team, that is all I can tell you. We need to stay on this role and win a couple more!”

     

    After qualifying was complete Ric Fleck sat atop the sheet with a 3.917 at 186.10. Fleck’s 3.917 was low for the event. Robbie Matthews came from the # 2 spot with a 3.9406 at 189.79. Alan Pittman was 3rd with a 4.124 at 148.46. Robert Sellers was 4th with a 4.337 at 162.86. The man that was 5th was Dwayne White with a 4.403 at 140.40. Carol Long ended up 6th with a 4.581 at 134.32. Sonny Tindal came out of the 7th spot with a 4.776 at 11.19. Anchoring the field was Steve Bray with a 5.158 at 93.63.

     

    The first round of eliminations got started with Carol Long and Alan Pittman. Pittman won this one with a 4.025 at 184.65 to Carol’s 12.926 at 40.71. The next pair up was supposed to Dwayne White and Robert Sellers. Robert couldn’t make the call because his Fury suffered a burnt piston. Dwayne went into tire shake and posted a 9.643 at 44.32.

     

    The third pair in the water box was Pro Modified Legend Sonny Tindal and Robbie Matthews. Sonny left first with a .048 light to Matthews’ .051. Matthews quickly made up the difference and pulled away running a 3.938 at 194.80 to Sonny’s 4.162 at 176.75. The final pair up in the first round of eliminations was Ric Fleck and Steve Bray. Fleck won this one with a 3.942 at 185.34 to Bray’s 4.080 at 182.62.

     

    The second round action kicked off with Alan Pittman and Robbie Matthews. Robbie was able to hold off Pittman’s 4.110 at 178.64 with a 3.961 at 194.05. Ric Fleck and Dwayne White were up next. Dwayne White battled tire shake and posted a 9.417 at 45.84 while Fleck streaked to the stripe with a 3.942 at 183.97.

     

    The final round was set, Ric Fleck and Robbie Matthews. These two Doorslammers had been the quickest all day. When the lights activated from amber to green Matthews cut a .003 light to Fleck’s .041. When the two went through the lights, a pair of 3.93s flashed up on both boards. Matthews needed the .003 light. His 3.932 at 192.55 beat Fleck’s 3.931 at 184.58.

     

    The event runner-up Ric Fleck added, “We were both going at it all day running good numbers. We were the number one and two qualifiers. It just came down to the end. Both tuners did their jobs and put the cars up to run good numbers. Robbie was good on the tree with a .003 light and mine was a .041 which wasn’t bad but it wasn’t a .003. It is what it is and we’ll lick our wounds and come back next week.”

     

    Fleck continued and said, “I want to thank the crew and everyone that pitched in and helped today. I also want to thank Darrell from Under Pressure Performance. The track was great and the race was run phenomenally. The track crew did a great job making sure they beat the rain. Hats off to the Orangeburg crew for a job well done.”

     

    Event winner Robbie Matthews said, “I really don’t know what to say. That’s three wins in a row and we got our win at Orangeburg. Some people you just want to beat worse than others and sometimes you just have to go for it and we did, you know. Its went the other way for me too. I’ve turned on the red light against him. You forget about that and just go for it. I just do the best I can. Sometimes it’s good sometimes it ain’t.”

     

    “We got a great group of guys,” continued Robbie. “I wouldn’t even attempt to do this without them. Chris Tuten was here today and gave us a lot of good help. I wished I could have him here all the time but he is a busy man. I just appreciate everybody, Buddy and Matthew and all my crew. Also, a big thank you to the Orangeburg Staff for the great job they did today.”

     

    The next event for the Quick 8 Outlaws will be August 10th at Union County Dragway. For more information the Quick 8 Outlaws please visit www.facebook.com/TheQuick8Outlaws or www.q8outlaws.com.

    “I don’t even know what to say this,” said winning car owner Kip Kauffman. “That’s two in a row for Mom. We had a tough day, fought the bad air all day. The car was like a bracket car all day. Cameron’s stuff worked all day, the car ran good considering the air. Robbie did his job in the final round and got us another win. We still have the hardest working crew, bar none.”

     

    With only six Pro Modified Doorslammers on the grounds Randy Weatherford scored the pole position with a 3.960 at 194.55. After changing breaking a rocker arm in the second round of qualifying Robbie Matthews posted a 3.970 at 190.53.

    Todd Howard battled suspension issues and ran a 4.308 at 146.99 that had him 4th. David Lambert in his newly built Tommy Mauney ‘66 Nova was 5th with a 4.443 at 167.40. After making the five-hour ride back from a rain out event Bubba Turner was 6th with a 4.561 at 124.53. Turner couldn’t make the 3rd round of qualifying because they too broke a rocker arm and had to change it.

     

    When announcer MoDee called for the first round of eliminations the first pair in the burnout box was Jr Ward and Todd Howard. Todd with some help from Todd Tutterow on their suspension got the Mustang turned around and posted a 4.04 but it wasn’t enough. Jr Ward got to the stripe first with a 4.026. The next pair up was Robbie Matthews and David Lambert. David lost traction while Robbie went a to b and posted another 3.97 to get the win. The final two up was Randy Weatherford and Bubba Turner. Bubba’s trans brake didn’t hold his Firebird while Randy posted a 3.971 to get the win.

     

    The round 2 action kicked off with Jr Ward and Robbie Matthews. Robbie won this race with another 3.97. Randy got a bye run into the final because of the car count but still went for lane choice but ran into traction problems posting a 4.491.

     

    The two quickest Pro Mods at the event in the final round it was time to see who would claim the victory. After the two did their burnouts, they staged and when the tree turned from amber to green Matthews left first with a .014 light to Weatherford’s .046. Robbie got to finish line first with a 3.956 to a quicker but losing 3.952.

     

    Standing in the winner’s circle Robbie Matthews said, “That’s two in a row! We got the win last weekend at Darlington and now here at Farmington. We had to battle through some adversary again today. We broke a rocker arm in the second round of qualifying. We still ran a 4.06 on seven cylinders. It was a lot of hard work but when you win, it’s worth it. I couldn’t do it without the guys that help me. They are a great bunch of crew members. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, we have the best crew out here. We kinda struggled getting down the track but we made it.”
